In this book, which corresponds to Book Ten of the Confessiones, Augustine pursues his meditation on the self and his intimate testimony to God by moving from his life before baptism to his entrance into a holy life and embrace of the Trinity, the celebration of which will occupy him for the remaining chapters. Augustine contemplates this transition within his own memory, for to him, the "vast treasure store of memory" is where identity is forged, it is the present and future in which we continually relive original experience and refashion everything we remember. Most important, it is the place where we learn, face ourselves, and can forge a relationship with God. By confronting himself deeply through his own memories, Augustine seeks to fathom his own inner life, and emerges as a visionary for others.
